”Single vineyard, single vintage and single variety (pinot noir), this is a gorgeously pale salmon coloured rose of layered complexity. Partial fermentation in old French oak followed by almost 6 years on lees in bottle has produced palate grip and texture that underline secondary strawberry and red cherry flavours. Delicately youthful even at eleven years of age, it carries long and restrained through the finish.”
Classic Kreglinger Brut Rose aroma's, a sensual extravagant rose with all the hallmarks of fine cool climate sparkling, displaying the subtle hints of sweet exotic spice, fresh crusty bread, stewed strawberries, ripe fleshy fig and quince jelly, all finely integrated and balanced by gamey pinot noir nuances.
A captivating, long, rich and balanced palate; sophisticated and beautifully defined creamy/bready mousse (Cordon de Mousse) forming a necklace, with strings of pearl bead that provides both fine and lively texture to the mouth feel. Freshly baked crusty bread, blood orange, ripe nectarine and the subtle hints of rhubarb and wild strawberry, The addition liqueur de dosage at disgorgement has added richness and complexity to the already multi-layered palate. The finish is long and elegant with marzipan nuttiness and mineral infused characters with a flavour richness that leads to a crisp, long dry lingering finish making it an ideal complement to food. Likely life span to 2020.
